Chicken in the Crock Pot

Come join the party!  It is Crocktober!
Foodie Friends Friday






Monday and HOT!  Monday is NOT one of my favorite days to cook dinner.  I like to have crock pot meals to minimize my time in the kitchen.  Well, today, the outdoor temperature has reached 100°, my kitchen is on the West side of my home, and heating up the kitchen late in the day is not something I like to do.  My recipe for Crock Pot Chicken takes only 4 hours!  I saw a recipe on Home is where the Holmans are.  I made a few adjustments and gave it a go.  It is very easy and taste delicious.  I also served some Parmesan and Cayenne Pop-Overs that I saw on Michele Woman Cave

Petite size Muffin Pan
Parmesan & Cayenne Popovers

1 cup milk
2 large eggs
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated

Preheat oven to 450°. 

In a medium sized bowl,  whisk together milk, eggs, melted butter, flour, salt and cayenne.
Add in grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes and reduce oven heat to 400°. Bake until golden brown
serve while hot.

The chicken is made Italian style and served over pasta, so the pop overs taste great with it!

Here is what you need!

My weekend project!   Did you guess what I was doing?  Painting the frame!  I found the frame and the print at a garage sale...  Over the next couple of weeks, I will mount the print in the frame and post another picture.
